This new research development could help resurrect the extinct woolly mammoth in future. Work by the research teams on the long-extinct woolly mammoth is opening the door to resurrecting this ice age creature from the dead. The team has produced, for the first time, a high-resolution genome or genetic blueprint of the giant mammal. This is the first of many steps which would make it possible to bring it to life, said NTU’s Dr Stephan Schuster, who is part of the Singapore-United States team involved in the effort.
